An introduction to wellness tourism
Wellness in its essence is the art of maintaining a constant state of well-being and good health as a pursued and desired lifestyle. As the famous saying goes, “The key to wellness is the personal responsibility of maintaining good health and well-being”. With that being said, the concept of “Wellness Tourism” has been developed with the purpose of influencing people to travel in order to get involved in physical, spiritual and psychological activities that enhance the mental and physical states of people, leading to improved states of health and well-being, while generating serenity and tranquility of the mind, body and soul.
Many branches have been developed under the phenomenon of “Wellness Tourism”, out of which Ayurveda Tourism and Spiritual Tourism have gained special attention and interest of tourists, mainly due to the many exceptional benefits provided and offered through these.
